Hm.. Itachi belongs to the Uchiha clan. But they're all 'omg you probably killed whatshisname and look at how weak we are and stuff!'. So he loses faith in his clan and kills everyone.
Itachi joins Akatsuki. Akatsuki doesn't give a royal crap about what Itachi does to gain power, since gaining power is one of their goals as well (world domination = power). If anything, they share some views on some stuff. So he's all 'yay, here they don't go asking me to do stupid stuff just because I'm someone's son, and they like killing, and at least they aren't as weak as the Uchihas. We should exchange numbers!'.
And so Itachi belongs to Akatsuki now. Because they're the kind of clan he'd want? Erm.. what I meant was what that other person said, same feather same flock.
i think he just want the kyuubi to be able to use the mangekyou sharingan longer, and he can't do that without help.......
wow the first not totally retarded thread in a LONG time!!! finally a reason to come here sift through the shit and say something
bah... Itachi probably joined for the same reason he killed his family, to test his strength, in essence by running with the strongest hes guaranteed to meet others who are as strong, nearly as strong, or even stronger than them. thus he gets to test his power constantly, ever pushing him to new levels... i dunno but given how hes always motivating Sasuke to get stronger, im assuming his goal in life is that of any egotistical anti-christ... to kick the undigested shit out of the strongest person in the world - who he hopes will be Sasuke (although we all know its Sakura)
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

Where better to test your strength than in a team of supervillains out to fight the most incredibly strong monsters the world has ever seen?
Why So Green And Lonely? We Are Accidents Waiting To Happen.
Is testing his strength all what there is to him?
Kyuubi said something about the Uchihas having a cursed chakra and whatever. I think there's more of Itachi than what has been shown. Don't you think he has ulterior motives yet to be revealed?
I don't know how this whole thing about the Uchihas (being Itachi the centre of the attention on this matter) fits with Akatsuki's goals.
I guess he wants to show Sasuke where he can be found, but also that Sasuske has to become strong to challange him.
i'd definitely say to test his capabilities and get stronger. end of story.
Could it just be that there is no real reason he joined. It's just somthing the writer did to further the story And has no real purpose.
You can say I don't care BUT to say I don't care anymore is wrong I just don't care to care to give a rats ass about a damn thing.
